The department informed its decision to the Joint Electricity Regulatory Commission (JERC) which held a public hearing here Monday to review the former's 2018-19 performance and determine tariff for the next fiscal.
She said there would be no additional burden on the consumers since there would be no tariff hike for fiscal 2019-20.
Consumer rights activist Roland Martins told the JERC hearing that power theft was the prime reason for increasing revenue gap.
He also told the JERC hearing about faulty electricity meters.
